Marvel Puzzle Quest celebrates second birthday with an epic Galactus boss fight

Marvel Puzzle Quest, D3 Go's free-to-play casual match-three game, is celebrating its second birthday this weekend. And the publishers has invited a special guest for the occasion: the eater of worlds himself, Galactus.

Beginning this Thursday, Oct. 8, Marvel Puzzle Quest players will be able to take part in a boss battle event against Galactus. As with the previous Ultron boss fight event from this summer, players will need to work together to chip away at Galactus' health and eventually take him down.

The game will also feature two new multiplayer tournaments during the birthday celebrations: one focused on Devil Dinosaur and one focused on "the class of 2015" — all the playable heroes and villains introduced to the game throughout the last year. Red Hulk and a new classic version of Cyclops will join the game during the festivities.

Even if you're not planning to jump into the new events, D3 will also be giving away some nice gifts to players. Anyone logging in during the event will receive a special recruit token for free, and anniversary character packs will be available to purchase at a special reduced price. Players will also receive double ISO rewards for taking part in versus and story events during the birthday.

D3 Go shared an infographic with some interesting stats about the game, which you can check out below.

[CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the Galactus fight would begin on Saturday, Oct. 3. This has been replaced in the article with the correct start date of Thursday, Oct. 8.]
